Data supporting this concept are given in Table 2-7. There is a 9-fold increase in intestinal metallothionein concentration [measured indirectly by a Cd(II)-binding assay] and a 7-fold increase in metallothionein mRNA with a 36-fold increase in dietary zinc. A similar increase in dietary Cu has no such effect, although it may have produced a slight increase in metallothionein. (There was no change in mRNA ). It is well established that the affinity of this small divalent-metal-binding protein for copper is much greater than it is for zinc.

5 ng. • Copper bound (ng) was determined by dividing the 67Cu cpm by the original specific activity of the isotope. This does not give an accurate value of the actual chemical Cu present, although doses were high enough to almost "swamp out" endogeneous Cu. of rats on normal diets, in vivo, a 30-180-fold greater simultaneous infusion of zinc acutely inhibited overall copper absorption and transfer by about 50% (Oestreicher and Cousins, 1985). At higher amounts of infused copper, a roughly five fold greater amount of zinc also inhibited absorption, but to a much lesser extent.

1988a). Once in the cell, there would appear to be at least two compartments from which back flow/release of copper to the medium may be occurring. , 1989) (X, Y, and perhaps W; Fig. 3-1). External albumin and histidine do not, however, stimulate effiux of copper from the cells. , 1983) and more recently for fibroblasts from the same kinds of animals (Waldrop and Ettinger, 1990). The studies of McArdle et al. (1988b), Waldrop and Ettinger (1990), and Waldrop et a/. (1988, 1990) with fibroblasts, confirm the inhibitory effects of albumin and indeed indicate a more marked inhibitory effect of albumin and histidine on Cu uptake by fibroblasts (as compared to hepatocytes ).
